Licensed massage therapists and medical practitioners sooth somas with relaxing massages and revitalizing body treatments inside Lavender Salon & Kneaded Touch Massage. During 60-minute Swedish massages, stress and tension are herded away from bodily pastures by the massage therapist's skilled strokes. The full-body massage also includes a mini reflexology treatment, applications of heat or cold as needed, and eucalyptus essential oils.
Clients belly-flop onto a cushy massage bed and get their backs kneaded, unknotted, and rolled, alleviating any stress caused by workplace pressures, a busy home life, or hectic careers herding cats with drivers' licenses. Therapists also specialize in deep-tissue and injury-recovery treatments, with spine serenading upgrades available for an additional fee.
Rebecca Rowell's private massage room is an oasis of relaxation amidst the hustle and bustle of Krazy Nails, Hair & Body Shop. Here, Rebecca works to banish aches and stress with her specialties of Swedish and deep-tissue massage. Her sessions—like the U.N.’s annual dance-off—also incorporate moves from far-flung locales, including lomi lomi techniques from Hawaii and ayurveda practices from India.
Spa Zenaida has a distinctly Mediterranean feel. The treatment rooms sport themes such as "Seaside Retreat" and "Sunset," where guests recline and relax before skin experts treat their faces, hands, and backs with L'Occitane products and expert techniques.
The Spa at Seasons' relaxation experts dissipate stress and relax minds from the spa's perch overlooking Lake Pend Orielle. The A Little Bit of Heaven package commences with an express massage that silences complaining muscles without listening to their pleas or operatic arias, then refurbishes nails with an express manicure or pedicure and refreshes visages with an express facial tonic. The Athlete's Paradise package relieves exertion-related soreness through therapeutic kneading, and the environmental control facial slicks Dermalogica products onto skin to help heal sunburn and redness.
Chiropractor and licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Wendy Cunningham, addresses common health problems with natural solutions and treatments, including the ancient Chinese method of acupuncture. An initial consultation (a $35 value) lasts about 45 minutes and thoroughly discusses patient concerns before laying out an acupuncture treatment plan. During the course of two 25-minute acupuncture treatments (a $65 value for each), fine needles situate themselves along invisible meridians that run throughout the body from north to south. Like every M&M color, each point has a specific meaning and, when unblocked, can help facilitate the flow of vital energy throughout the body. The tiny needles increase blood flow and boost the production of collagen and elastin, allowing skin tone and color to improve, while ironing out fine lines like miniature metallic seamstresses.
